Tunnel Vision

- Robert peering down his make believe tunnel. Getting a 5 year old male child to hold still for a full half second exposure is just plain luck. It was pretty much the max of his attention span today. Well come to think of it, that's pretty the max of my attention span everyday. Canon G11, 0.6 seconds @ f/3.2, ISO 800.

From 2010 Blog
- This wall of cheap jewelry screamed "take my picture" so I obliged. Of course I asked permission and the Asian shop manager said OK but gave me the "why would you" look. It's a look I'm very familiar with. This was one of many shops we visited in Greenwich Village during our trip to New York City back in April. Canon G11, 1/200 sec @ f/2.8, ISO 800.

The Cutting Edge

From 2010 Blog
- This is the real "cutting edge". A 5X super macro photo of the edge of a carving knife. I was inspired to break out the 65 mm MPE macro lens after viewing the awesome macro work of Cait Wade. I kind of cheated using a dedicated macro lens as compared to her DIY "semi-ghetto" technique using stacked and reversed standard lenses. Canon 7D, 1/10 sec @ f/4.5, ISO 400.

"The Mean Stuff"

From 2010 Blog
"The Mean Stuf" is the tag line for a security product called Razor Ribbon Helical. Often used with old fashion concertina wire, the tight loops of razor wire make for a nasty barrier. However, I have often noticed how the sun plays off the shiny surfaces, changing with each helical turn. So late this afternoon I took the opportunity to make this picture. Canon 7D, 1/800 sec @ f/8.0, ISO 200, 55mm focal length.
